Submission Policy and Release Agreement
Afro Comic Con does not regularly accept any submissions, solicited or unsolicited ideas, treatments, concepts, scripts, or artworks, and other materials because we are fairly new and we do not want to be accused of stealing anyone’s idea, so if you have any concerns about your material please copyright your work before submitting it to us https://www.copyright.gov/.
However, AFCC has considered the possibility of new ideas, formats, or concepts from outside its internal source circle, and new development programs ideas.
Therefore, if you have an idea treatment, concept, artwork, or other material that you’d like AFCC to consider, you may submit such materials to AFRO COMIC CON, but only if you first acknowledge and agree to the AFRO COMIC CON Submission Policy and Submission Release Agreement.
Please note that if you choose to submit materials, we prefer that you send a link to publicly-posted portfolios. Any submissions in excess of 25 MB will not be accepted and must be provided by sending a link.
